Kind regards,

Margi, I surely need and want do learn more about wines, but I have a thousands things to do... I need to find some good reference books on Italian wines and winemaking, possibly not to long and not to boring!
Like this beautiful book on Italian food that I'm currently studying: Amazon.com: The Oxford Companion to Italian Food (Oxford Companions) (9780195387100): Gillian Riley: Books

Kades both Charley D and I for different reasons struggle with the written word.I dont think D has been taken to task over our problem, I certainly have not.
I think this is more about content and delivery rather than linguistics. I came here to learn and to help if I could.I have no need to inflate my rather impressive ego through this medium because as a true British gentleman I find people who do rather gauche.

there ya go luca,hugh johnson obe,as wiki says,he's considered the worlds leading wine writer....no mean feat for a brit as britain isn't exactly famous for it's wines!!
i was given his guide to wines as a present from my boss,who was a bit of a wine buff, back in the late 70's.it was all in simple easy to understand language which,imo,creates an interest & hunger for knowledge more than jargon & floury " flim flam"

Thanks Harry. I think I'll start with this easy one, just to understand if I like this Author.

i think you'll like him luca,very down to earth,no jargon plus he must have something going for him to have become #1!
when i was given the book in the 70's about the only wine "the average man in the street"could buy in this country(outside of a restaurant that is)was a pretty dire chianti(á lá fiasco)hence all the lamps!,an equally dire spanish wine called vina maria as i recall,mateus rosé that i still enjoy & some godawful rieslings.i remember him extolling the beauty of rioja wines & to buy some as a "good wine" wave was going to hit britain in the next few years & the price would rocket.he also named a wine merchant in the old fruit exchange in liverpool.
i shot up the old fruitexchange & bought a few cases for much less than £1 a bottle.beautiful stuff too.think it was faustino or banda azul.anyway,next few years & rioja is all over the place & the price had trebled.
he knows his stuff alright
